ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) are one of the most celebrated electronic music acts around with a meteoric rise that has seen them go from playing Birthdays in Dalston (200 cap) to selling out The Troxy in Whitechapel (3k cap) within 18 months. During this rise they have been nominated for a GRAMMY, headlined festivals around the world and worked with the cream of contemporary vocalists.
Today, the duo announce their new 16-track album A Moment Apart out 8 September 2017 on Counter Records (a Ninja Tune imprint) and a world tour that takes in London’s 02 Forum Kentish Town.
A Moment Apart represents ODESZA’s growth, delivering a more mature sound through weighted atmospheres, shimmering synth lines and familiar feelings of nostalgia, optimism and hope. Vocal performances include Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor and RY X, creating an eclectic mix and showcasing the dynamic range ODESZA is known for.
Album closer Corners Of The Earth (feat. RY X), released today, builds upon a chilling vocal performance by RY X through thunderous low-end and swirling synthesizers, horns and choir that grow and expand throughout the song. The track coalesces into a cinematic, emotional climax in a pure ODESZA style. Also released today, Meridian, is a trademark ODESZA song, filled with rhythmic, pulsating drums and powerful vocals in a bed of lush synths and percussive punch. Meridian has a touch more grit and represents a subtle tone shift for the duo as reflected in the cover art designed by Mills and Michelle Gadeken.
Listen to both Corners Of The Earth (feat. RY X) and Meridian along with the previously released Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair) and Late Night here: http://odesza.co/playlist.
